Have been coming here for probably 20 years. Many of the old favorite so delicious (catfish beignets, enchilada stack, Chile relleno, jalapeno margarita. But salads we're not as good. Sauce was vinegary and fish could have been fresher. Place was pretty empty. Serving staff not as peppy as they used to be. Overall felt tired for the first time in my experience.

We went on a Friday around 6. The place was deserted.


The good
We were in the back room by the parking lot. Just 1 other occupied table so it was not noisy.
Our server was excellent.
The cocktails were tasty

The questionable
The hot tortilla chips were rancid. Smelled terrible. They were replaced by cold ones that were ok
No bathrooms in the restaurant. You had to go next door & down several flights of stairs -VERY difficult for my hubby who often uses a wheelchair
As we left we walked out through the main dining area & we gagged at the stench of sewerage. I mean literally gagged. I just don’t know why anyone was seated in that room & even more oddly why anyone stayed

The service at ZTejas was terrific and the margarita was one of the best I’ve had. Was a little disappointed in the tortilla soup but the shrimp tostados as an appetizer were great!

Service was excellent. Food was hit or miss. I had the pork tenderloin and it just wasn’t seasoned well. Veggies cooked to perfection but again not seasoned and one bite was horribly over seasoned with Turmeric. (maybe couldn’t put my finger on the flavor.) Shrimp tostada bites were delicious as usual and we all enjoyed our drinks from the bar. Next time I will def order something I’ve had before ie the diablo pasta or mac n cheese but we don’t eat there very often. Didn’t feel worth the trip this time.

Z Tejas remains a staple for us for brunch on the Austin scene. It is always an enjoyable dining experience, whether it's for two or, as in our case, seven.

Had brunch at Z’Tejas today. Haven’t been to Austin in awhile and this has always been a great casual restaurant. Had the Bloody Mary build your own bar which has some really good selections to choose from. Two of us ordered the chicken and waffles, which were very good. Could have been a bit spicier for my taste. Another person in our group had the panko crusted chicken salad and she said is was delicious. The other person had the special burrito and also thought it was great. All in all, consistent quality, great menu, and great service.

Service was on point. Our waiter was great. Came in for brunch and bloody mary bar was a bit pitiful. Food was a mixed bag. Jerk chicken salad was over dressed and lettuce was so mushy you would have thought cooked. Breakfast quesadilla was okay but the chicken enchiladas were soggy and over cooked. Used to love this place but won't be back.

Table-side guacamole is not made at the table. It is premade in kitchen except for the seasonings. I like chunky guacamole, hence the order for table side. Instead, it was mashed up.

The margarita I ordered with help from server. The taste was not what we discussed. I ordered a Miller lite and the restaurant was out.

Ordered the grilled trout salad and the fish was delicious. However, the salad was soaked in dressing and not edible.

3 strikes and your out.

The table in the front room was near a table of screaming young people. Not acceptable. We should have been moved or the table asked to not be so loud. Ruined an otherwise nice dinner.

The unfortunate part of our good experience was my wife and I ordered the prime rib breakfast special. They were both delivered to us well done to burnt thus almost destroying the dish. The waiter advised us that is how the kitchen is preparing the dish for all... It was a little bit of a let-down.

What a great place to explore a variety of interesting menu items. The famous cornbread lived up to its reputation, and our entree's were delicious! It was the perfect place for a quiet date night dinner before heading out to enjoy Austin's entertainment scene.

It was a really hot humid night so thankfully we were moved inside easily even though we had reserved outside! The drinks and food were great. The wait staff did a nice job giving us time/room to chat while remaining attentive. We had plenty of time to eat and get to the theater. The hardest part was the poor valet - he was working by himself, hustling as fast as he could - we must have all been headed to the same place. Love Z’Tejas and can’t wait to return!

Great menu with multiple options for everyone. We arrived earlier than our reservation but were accommodated without a hitch (party of 8). Our server was awesome and steered us expertly through the menu, suggesting appetizers/ entrees/ and cocktails. We had a blast celebrating our recent graduate and never felt hurried or rushed.

Loved the shrimp tostada appetizer suggested by our waiter. Impeccable service. I also enjoyed the cornbread skillet very much and the cilantro grilled chicken. My husband raved about the chicken enchiladas too. Great atmosphere.. jovial! The valet parking helped a lot!

We ha a great meal with an out of town guest. Catfish beignets always please + a round of margaritas. I had Seafood Enchiladas which were perfect, I tried a bite of the steak with the peppercorn sauce which was cooked exactly as ordered. My one bite of the Mac and Cheese with a seasoned and grilled chicken breast was SO good (dangerous habit right there) and lastly I didn’t have a bit of the street tacos but our guest’s plate was wiped clean.
